Retention Bonus?!?!?

How in the heck is the company telling multi year full time outfitters/managers they can’t get bonuses/review pay increases for the entire year because of Covid, but turn around and hand out $1000 retention bonuses to new employees day 1. I’m in the... —  read more

Word is CLUB is going to be restructured for the holiday. Company is going to be keeping a more aggressive eye on employees who struggle with it. Management might have to discipline at the same level as a no call/insubordination which include write... —  read more 

Grass IS greener

Former GSM here. I left several months ago and now work for a grocery store. One of the best moves I have ever made. For myself not feeling safe was the last straw but the past year contributed as well. Essentially I managed softlines and my team was... —  read more 

lost it's way

Sadly this company has gone into the toilet when it used to be the best place to work in retail. My store is now a joke and everyone hates it there now. They lecture about club constantly and they lecture about stocking and all they care about is... —  read more 

Get out while you can!

Cut payroll, fire people who know anything about hinting, fishing, or camping. Get a bunch of cheap managers who are obedient. Pay minimum wage to the low ranks and who cares if they can help customers or not. Fire them and hire new mo–ns. Stock... —  read more

Rumors about more job loss?

We are one of the stores who has a GM covering three stores. Although I haven’t heard any rumors about additional cuts it wouldn’t surprise me. Things have been strange for awhile now. Nothing would surprise me at this point. Hope for the best !

Please just quit.

Then just quit. If you’re really scared you are going to die just quit. Anyone thinking Johnny Morris owes them anything is being naive. Everybody complaining on here can make the decision for themselves not to work for someone they clearly blame for... —  read more
